Dunne tries his best!
11 May 2005 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Tom (Griffin Dunne) has a wife who is a health nut, a fashion nut, and just an overall nut. He wants a divorce but ends up nagging instead. When his wife goes across the border to Mexico for some bizarre medical treatment, he meets another woman named Marty at a get together. She's the one reading a book in a private corner of the house. She's attractive but sullen, Tom thinks. However, he runs into her again some weeks later and feels a strong pull in her direction. Marty, a laboratory worker, has just gotten out of a long, dismal relationship; she is not inclined to start something new. Tom is not deterred. Suddenly, his wife returns. Let the fun begin? The only reason this film does not totally collapse is because of Griffin Dunne. His looks and comedic expressions are always worthy, even in a film saddled with a clichéd and very amateurish script. And the pace! This movie moves along like a geriatric and blind snail with an ingrown toenail. The costumes are pretty dismal, too, even though the viewer knows Marty is trying to look less than attractive to halt Tom's attentions. BUT, if you are a perennially hopeless romantic or a Dunne fan, well, then, go ahead and fish this one out of the bottom row, in the far corner of the video store. You will find something to like in an mostly drab film.
